MONOS

Colombia / Argentina / Netherlands / Germany / Sweden / Uruguay. 2019. Directed by Alejandro Landes. (102 mins.) Rated R. in English and in Spanish with English subtitles

MONOS is a haunting, pitch-perfect look at human nature and its fraying edges!

"Call it a collective character study or a perpetual-war film - Monos takes it cues from a number of well-known influences. But there's a specific, singular madness that's completely its own." - David Fear, Rolling Stone

SELECTED AS COLOMBIA'S OFFICIAL SUBMISSION TO THE BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM OSCAR CATEGORY!


A stylized, deceptively surreal and visionary film that teeters between beauty and brutality, MONOS is captivatingly otherworldly in its ingenious, inventive reframing of typical "war" movies. In the remote mountain jungles of Colombia, a small group of ragtag adolescents controlled by a mysterious guerrilla organization harbor youthful, elusive dreams of peace. When they are suddenly attacked by a rival force, the teens must trek down the mountains and into the jungle, where petty rivalries devolve into life-or-death battles and the young fighters descend into their own increasingly unhinged hearts of darkness. It is a brilliant, unforgettable and intoxicating fever-dream of anarchy and the driving power of control, reminiscent of both  Lord of the Flies and of APOCALYPSE NOW.

RAISE HELL: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MOLLY IVINS

United States. 2019. Directed by Janice Engel. (93 mins.) Not Rated.

In the entertaining and eye-opening documentary RAISE HELL: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MOLLY IVINS we have the privilege to meet the political columnist and satirist head on!

"With free speech under attack, and truth-telling seemingly in short supply, Raise Hell offers an entertaining and bracing look at one of journalism's least punch-pulling practitioners." - Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post


With a personality as big as her native Texas, political columnist Molly Ivins skewered both right and left with ferocious gumption and devotion, giving a voice to those who had none. Ivins was an outsider from the start: bookish, six feet tall by the age of 12 and itching to write. Add to this a keen awareness of the horrors of the segregated south as well as an inclination to rebel against her authoritarian oilman father and, of course, she had no choice but to make wit her weapon. Following her career from Houston to Minneapolis to New York and ultimately back to her Texas roots which led to nationwide fame and syndication in over 400 newspapers, RAISE HELL: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MOLLY IVINS is an unflinching, sharp-tongued portrait of a legendary freedom fighter. Boy, couldn't we use her right about now!

DOWNTON ABBEY

UK. 2019. Directed by Michael Engler. (122 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD]


When deciding where to watch Downton Abbey, we sincerely hope you'll choose your favorite, locally-owned independent movie theater where you know that you and movies always matter!

From the first magical notes of the DOWNTON ABBEY theme to the brilliant final scenes, director Michael Engler and screenwriter Julian Fellowes do this amazingly talented ensemble justice!

"Downton Abbey, the series, has only been gone for a little more than three years. But that's just enough time to make its return very welcome, and to make this feel like the right moment to usher it back into the zeitgeist again." - Jen Chaney, New York Magazine/Vulture


A sweetly impassioned charmer with snappy dialogue, this suitably sumptuous capper to the popular TV series is cozy, highly-crafted escapism. The Crawley family and their loyal staff are preparing for the most important moment of their lives – a visit from the King and Queen of England! Looking as lovely as ever, the residents and servants are sent into a right royal tizz after it is revealed that they will be traveling with their own battalion of attendants who will, insultingly, take over the duties of the regular crew. DOWNTON ABBEY is a beautifully breezy, perfectly pleasant, congenial crowd-pleaser.

LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE

United States. 2019. Directed by Rob Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman. (95 mins.) Not Rated. [CC]

An extraordinary and poignant showcase of a magnificent trailblazer,  LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE is a fun and lovely trip down memory lane!

"She shows herself to be one of its indispensable interpreters, as a vocalist and also as a thinker - covering a sprawling landscape with elegance, passion and insight." - A.O. Scott, New York Times


With a voice that spanned genres and generations, Linda Ronstadt burst onto the music scene in 1967 with her extraordinary vocal range and an ambition to create unforgettable songs. She was a pioneer and champion for women in the male-dominated music industry. Today, Ronstadt has Parkinson's disease and her magnificent singing voice has been silenced. But rather than letting that voice be lost to history, LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE tells Linda's story through her own words and music. Featuring moving performance footage and appearances by friends and collaborators, this stirring doc celebrates an artist whose desire to share the music she loved made generations of fans fall in love with her. Her music – and influence – remain timeless.
